Can You Name This ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Star In Drag? — PIC

Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers ClubGenerally speaking, when a man dresses up like a woman for a movie role, it’s usually either a screwball comedy, or a gritty, introspective, occasionally hard-to-watch drama.

In the first category, we have the works of Monty Python and Martin Lawrence, and movies like Some Like It Hot and Mrs. Doubtfire. In the second, the likes of The Crying Game, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and the developing new feature The Dallas Buyers Club.

Here, we see a new image of (before we reveal, can you guess?) Jared Leto in costume as his character, a drag queen named Rayon who assists star Matthew McConaughey in a drug trafficking endeavor. We’ve already seen McConaughey transform impressively for Dallas Buyers Club, promising optimism for Jean-Marc Vallée’s forthcoming drama.

Leto has a slew of interesting, artful roles to his name: Requiem for a Dream, Prefontaine, American Psycho, and Fight Club, among others. His new gig, a story that involves struggles with drug addiction, sexual pervasiveness, and AIDS, looks to be right in keeping with the actor/musician’s consistent tone of downtrodden, authentic human drama.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
